What amuses me about the geek quiz is that they don't ask if the Cisco equipment is actually working, or even a whole system... It's not a secret thing that Cisco uses many fine Xilinx parts, and I have a puppy board off one of their really old main boards that I was using to debug a particular part design problem, not really, ostensibly, for the specific circuitry they were actually using, but just borrowed to have real circuits to work with. It is very broken, it's not alive, it's sadly out of date, and I've even cannibalized chips, connectors and other things off it for other stuff... but it was, long ago, Cisco equipment...
